What has ‘Cafe Parisian’, ‘Thornton’s Chocolates’, and ‘The Tie Shop’ got to do with Human Right’s day?
That is where Peter and Frank will have a stand telling people about ‘Human Rights.’
They will be there between 12 and 3pm.
Thursday 10th December 2015 is Human Rights day.
And you have never been needed so badly.
Come and give them some support even for only 5 minutes.
December 10th is International Human Rights Day. It marks the adoption of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, by the United Nations General Assembly on Dec 10th, 1948.
It was the first international recognition that all human beings – regardless of race, religion, gender or class are entitled to fundamental rights and freedoms. It arose following the experience of World War 2 , to stop allowing atrocities from taking place again.
It is the basis of international rights law today and sets a standard of rights for all people everywhere.
There are 30 articles in the Declaration, starting with ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’ and ends with a statement that no person, institution or government has a right to take those rights away.
